Dennis Young, Elizabeth Searing, and Cassady Brewer’s The Social Enterprise Zoo: A Guide for Perplexed Scholars, Entrepreneurs, Philanthropists, Leaders, Investors, and Policymakers will prove to be a foundational work in nonprofit and social innovation studies, as so much of Dennis Young’s work does. Among the many achievements of this edited book, two are most noteworthy: the proper and effective use of a biological analogy in a work of social science and, relatedly, a powerful and flexible framework for understanding in the past, present, and future of social enterprises, that is, organizations attempting to blend social purpose and profit.
